the consequences are still ongoing. while those who have moved to shelters here in tokyo are facing that guilt and the pressure to move back home there are others who have lost everything cannot handle the overwhelming change and they are facing even darker demons japan already has one of the highest suicide rates in the world and following the disaster in march the government has issued a warning about a possible nationwide epidemic of depression here some organic farm us committed suicide because you know before nick. is everything they know each other a good soil for after many hours of hard work and it's just contaminated one night going to go so. far. i'm very sad to hear the news and many other farmers are also very much depressed a recent national survey in japan performed by dr roshini and his team shows that

suicide rates in japan have been found increased in the months since the disaster compared to the same timeframe in the previous two years but the demographics are not what you might expect. a rate increase. in the. centers. but the fear areas because some by birds struggling to you costs. they have not had to make suicide this disaster has certainly taken its toll on japan's economy and such constant reminders of an intense topic can harm the collective psyche of the people who live here as well because of the. tsunami disaster plus nuclear disaster many people actually lost their jobs or their working on the show has crushed. so. yeah they have of so many good

a terrible terrible situation and policy and not really in any way dealing with the actual problems that are facing us here in japan and least plants are still leaching radioactivity into the environment every day into the sea and through the steam of the combing into the air and what what's now preoccupied many people in japan is that even for those of us that live far enough away that we thought we were not in any way threatened by the radiation from the plants we're now finding that because of insufficient oversight to the food supply and public health questions that radiation is turning up in all kinds of food products so you're finding now people in far away from fukushima areas are now beginning to realize that they're not going to be escaping the radiation because of that distance and additionally besides that there's still a rather chaotic policy about what will be happening in the areas that were contaminated near the plants but outside of the evacuation zone for example fukushima city we know that that neither taco tokyo electric or the government
9:05 am
inform the public when they knew that there had been all nuclear meltdowns people were not told to evacuate at that time and in terms of the current situation there is a great deal of anger especially among parents in fukushima prefecture and nearby that there is not a comprehensive system to try to protect the health of the people in those areas so you are seeing meetings every couple of days in which government officials are being yelled out by local residents who are complaining that they're not being given enough information about the health threats to their children and their families and the situation is in many ways here in japan compounding. that was a nuclear energy expert robert jacobs in hiroshima explaining the current situation in japan. he without see now we're like obama is calling on the american people to step up to the plate and pressure the politicians in dealing with the debt standoff congress has one week left to raise the country's multi-trillion dollar debt

9:07 am
have confidence in the united states they believe that the u.s. government will honor its outstanding obligations and so as long as people have faith in the investors have faith in the u.s. government in its credit worthiness then the u.s. could keep raising its debt ceiling the problem right now is that the debt is so high that that in itself is starting to become a negative factor that could lead to a credit rating downgrade of the united states government if china loses confidence in. america. american government's ability to pay its debts then the u.s. will have nowhere to run to the u.s. when the only the only choice it would have would be to keep printing money to inflate the currency run the printing presses and risk devastating hyperinflation or the u.s.
